Dedicated info for those in the local area
We will continue to update this page with information as we get closer to the Parade Day on the 29th June 2024!
The date of the drop-in will be announced in due course.
The Parade Route
The Parade route for Pride In London 2024 is still be finalised - please check back for the route map, event areas and road closures.
Deliveries and Commercial Waste Collections
Roads will be closed across the whole footprint which will affect vehicular access for businesses and residents. Please note that all feeder roads into the closed roads will also be affected. As a result, normal deliveries and waste collections may be affected on Saturday 29th June 2024.
If you have not made appropriate arrangements for collection, commercial waste cannot be placed out on the street.
Adhering to commercial waste collection requirements is very important. London Climate Week runs 22nd June - 30th June 2024, and Pride in London is committed to focussing on reducing waste and improving our sustainability impact. We ask you to consider how you can help to minimise your waste on Parade day, where possible.
Business Information Pack
An in depth Information Pack for Businesses will be available in due course
Pride in London aims to end all activities on the public highway at 20:00, following which street and environmental cleansing will begin.
If you are a licensed premises, you must follow the conditions of your premises licence.
If you are located in the Soho or surrounding areas and would like to do anything that impacts the highway (including pavements) outside of your normal operation, you must apply to do so. The Pride in London footprint can become very crowded and so it may not be possible to grant permission for some requests. Please note: The al-fresco street dining licences around Soho will be suspended on Saturday 29 June 2024.
In all other areas we ask you to consider if al-fresco street dining can be operated safely. Pride in London will not provide any barriers or security staff to enable you to manage al-fresco dining.
For more information about licensing and conditions to be observed, please refer to the Business Information Pack or email [email protected] for a copy.
Responsible Licensing Scheme
If you operate on a road which is closed and managed by Pride in London, you may have the opportunity to extend the activities of your normal premises licence for the day of Pride, meaning that you can potentially stay open later, or modify your business footprint between 12:00 and 20:00.
You can apply to use the public highway during the event by signing up to Pride in London’s Responsible Licensing Scheme. This will allow you to present your request to us as the organisers so we can support you with what is feasible for the area.
Pride in London reviews all highway extension applications, and acceptance will be on a case-by-case basis. Any additional street activity will need to allow a 4m-wide clear route for emergency vehicles. If necessary, we’ll consult with Westminster City Council and the Metropolitan Police. If approved, the Business Liaison Team will contact you to discuss next steps. Please ensure you have approval from Pride in London for additional activity.
Please check back for more information on the Responsible Licensing Scheme, including details on how to apply.
For more information or help in your Responsible Licence Scheme application, please refer to the Business Information Pack or contact us at [email protected].
Modifying your Licence / Temporary Event Notice (TEN)
If you have a premises licence check the conditions to confirm what activities you are permitted and the restrictions that apply. If you want to modify your normal operation you will need to apply for a Temporary Event Notice with Westminster City Council.
Please note: for safety reasons, we are unlikely to approve any application made for al-fresco dining.
Please use the following link to access the application form and guidance notes.
The deadline for application is on Friday 31st March 2024. If you need any advice or assistance with your application for a TEN please email Westminster Council on [email protected] and [email protected]
For more information on your TEN application, please refer to your Business Information Pack or email us at [email protected].
